Another closing, another show …
They took their bows and exited stage right and down the hall to bask in the success of their show, mingle and strike a few poses. Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Tower Players’ Hunchback of Notre Dame was a success by all accounts.
The cast performed a comedic version of the show, which the audience embraced with lots of laugh-out-loud moments that were the talk of the weekend.
The show closed on Sunday to accolades and bonding moments with the cast, crew and audience.
Take a look for a glimpse into another RFH show …

It’s that time of the RFH school year when the Tower Players are readying their fall production. This year it’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and curtain goes up three days from now.
But, back in the 1970s, there was more. Seniors had an end-of-the-year variety show and, for a short stint, freshmen had a follies. And in the fall of 1974, all freshmen talent was pooled and the follies show went on.Continue reading Retro RFH Freshmen Show Folk
Call it Halloween buddy system brooming. Remember the old buddy system? Trick or treating with a buddy to stay safe. Ever apply that theory in high school tricks with the only treat being the friendship and good ride through it all together?
Well, this gruesome twosome of best buds applied the system for some double trouble all in good ghoulish fun. Now that’s a special brand of mischief. You could say they were headed every witch way on this Halloween in the late 1970s, except to class.
The two would be Sue Brower and Bonnie Werner of the RFH Class of ’78.
So the double-dose Retro Pic(s) of the (George) Day feature them at their Halloween best.Continue reading Retro RFH Witchy Women’s Ride
A Halloween reprise to honor the season of the ghost …
Scary season has set in. People in the Rumson-Fair Haven area aren’t just out raking leaves, either. They’re haunting up their homes, crafting costumes and getting into the spirit. So, why not add a little extra retro spooking from RFH students of the past?
BOO … who or what? It was all in the haunt for RFHers back in the 1970s. They started getting the Halloween party going early on and ended up with a pretty festive feast of ghouls on the grounds of the high school and, yes, beyond.Continue reading Retro RFH Ghostly Gaggle
Well, it’s about that time for Halloween parades. In fact, Fair Haven’s is on Sunday. And, back in the day, RFH had its own high school Halloween parade.
Some bunny — or a few bunnies and other assorted suspicious characters — got dressed for the occasion, paraded themselves around campus and benched themselves for a spell, too.
The Halloween spirit is in the air. And these senior gaggle of girls embodied it. From controversial, yet timely and popular at the time, Playboy bunny costumes, to Raggedy Ann, a ghost, a cat, a gypsy and whatever else, they were parading and pleased with their choices.Continue reading Retro Benched RFH Halloween Paraders

Some moments are meant for just lounging … like the persistent foul fall weather of the past few days. There was a place for that for juniors at RFH back in the day.Continue reading Retro RFH Foul Weather Junior Lounging
Rainy days and Thursdays always get an RFHer confined to study hall … or some sort of cubicle cut off from high school antics. But, sometimes students find their own fun in a cube bound by books and school rules.Continue reading Retro RFH Study Hall Hijinks
The Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School’s (RFH) Girls Soccer team is putting itself in someone else’s cleats.
The girls’ team has come a long way since the late 1970s, when one girl raised a ruckus by scoring a goal for girl athletes by using some fancy footwork to earn a spot on the boys’ team. Since 1984, there’s been a girls’ team at RFH and its a winning one in more ways than one — teamwork to score for one another and others.Continue reading RFH Girls Soccer: Scoring Wins on Field & In Charity
There’s a lot of casual hometown pride running through Fair Haven and it has to do with a hero’s run in New York and a couple of longtime borough residents, friendship and many years of brotherhood in emergency response.Continue reading Scene Around: Fair Havenites’ Run for Heroes’ Sake
